Conference 16/11/13, Donetsk, Ukraine: Vectors of Traditionalism – The East, Islam, Paganism

On November 16th, 2013, I have been invited to a round table in Donestk, Ukraine, to talk about Arturo Reghini, Italian neo-Pythagoreanism and Reghini’s ties with Julius Evola. The conference is organised by the Donetsk Regional Youth Association for the Study of Religions, the Center of Religious Science Research and International Spiritual Relations, the Ukrainian Center of Islamic Studies, the Creative Group «Aghlaqin» and the Donetsk Association for Philosophy & Religious Studies. The happening is called ‘Vectors of Traditionalism’, and promises to be an incredibly informative mix of Traditionalist theory, Islamic Studies and monographic approaches to Guénon, Evola, Coomaraswamy and other pillars of Traditionalist thought. Here follows the main info for the event, provided by organiser Ruslan Halikov.
